More playtime -

"Hive Activity I"
digitally manipulated fractal flame by Mick Mather
I took an old fractal that wasn't really going anywhere, tossed it into my digital drawing software and started to play around. After adding a half dozen drawn elements, carefully layered over the top to obscure the parts I didn't care for, it went into another editor for some well deserved, heavy filtering. The first few rounds of that are almost always experimental but, rather early in the game, out comes this image that reminds me of nothing quite so much as a hive of bees. So, here you have it, enjoy!

Oh, this is rainbowplastic to pop! DeLuxe-version of that wrapping thing that makes you crazy when you have to break all the bubles -don't know the English word.

Got to have some of that right away!

Aptly named I think Mick!
I have some vintage honeycomb patterned glass I 'rescued' from the rubbish and it does look much like this!

Hmmm, a fraidy cat over breaking that glass, eh? Is it worth something? Is it worth enough to be appraised? No? Smash it up!

Oooh, lots of fun new stuff. I particularly LOVE this one--it looks like a weaving and more. SUPER! Great colors and effects!

Very astute of you to notice the weave patterning. One of the filters I use here in the secret visual laboratory has a seemingly endless variety of weaves. :)
